About

"SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE" is the title of my band's upcoming album.

It was recorded in June at Eastcote studios in London and it's now fully mixed and mastered. With obvious jazz roots this music unveils a vast number of different influences from "head-banging" rock riffs to intricate minimal classical music influenced rhythms.

The beautiful cover artwork is also currently being made by great artist Rob Challens.

The new album is sounding and looking great but the aim of this campaign will go towards the UK tour which will promote the album release.

I have spent around a year working hard in putting together this UK tour. It's now all confirmed and it would be an extremely important step for the album and band promotion.

Unfortunately the concert fees aren't enough to cover traveling expenses and some of the hotels. I have also spent all my savings into the making of the album so this is where I'm counting with your help.

You can contribute by choosing one or more of the different "rewards" available in this campaign.

Here's a detailed plan of the tour dates and a little breakdown of the costs I'm talking about:

8th November in Cardiff at Cafe Jazz http://www.cafejazzcardiff.com

9th November in Bristol at The BeBop Club http://www.thebebopclub.co.uk

10th November in Shrewsbury at The Hive http://www.shrewsburyjazznetwork.co.uk

12th November in Manchester at The Whiskey Jar https://nqjazz.com

13th November in Birmingham at Jazz at the Spotted Dog

16th November in Birmingham at Jazzlines https://www.thsh.co.uk

17th November in Brighton at The Verdict https://verdictjazz.co.uk

18th November in Southampton at Southampton modern jazz club http://www.southamptonmodernjazzclub.com

5th December in London at The Vortex http://www.vortexjazz.co.uk - Official release date

Costs involving a band with 5 persons: Van hiring - £700, 4 nights out in hotels - £840, Traveling fuel - £425, Total - £1965

This is also an "All or Nothing" campaign which means that if it doesn't reach its threshold by the deadline, the money goes back to you. If it does, well we're all happy and the tour goes ahead. Any money raised above the threshold will support other costs like feeding the musicians during the tour for example.

So, I really hope that together we can make this campaign succeed.

THANK YOU!!!

Risks and challenges

This album will only be released on the 5th of December.
The CD design and its consequent manufacturing it's not yet completed but should happen very soon.
I will most certainly be able to send you the album as soon as this campaign finishes and even before the official release date.

For the commissioned compositions, it will take a while until I can show some results to you. It usually takes me around a month for a solo guitar piece but probably two months for a full band one.
The solo piece I will be able to film a performance with a decent level of quality and send you the video and sheet music.
The full band piece will be more challenging as I would have to invest a lot more money to record it or make a video. I fully commit myself however to include it on my next album and personally invite you to any concert where we might perform it.
